BAWP 008: An Outlet for the Best WordPress Plugins
Sep 19 13
Podcast Episode Overview
In this episode of Building a Website Pro, we get to the core of WordPress plugins. With over 27,000+ plugins in the WordPress.org database alone (and growing), it's easy to get lost in analysis paralysis in terms of what to actually install in your WordPress website. I cut through the clutter answering (hopefully most) of your burning plugin questions as well as share the essential plugins I recommend (and even a few "non-essential" ones I really appreciate).
More specifically, in this session you’ll learn:
What are WordPress plugins? (Aren't those the air fresheners you put in the wall to make the room smell nice?)
Why do I need plugins?
How many plugins should I use?... and no, it's not ... every one that looks shiny
What Makes a WordPress Plugin Essential?
How do I search for plugins and Research plugins before installing them?
When I started with WP, I wanted to know which ones I even needed! So...What Essential WordPress Plugins Does Michael Recommend? I will share with you the top 10 plugins I install on nearly every website (And guess what? They're they're all free!) Yippee!
And much more!
